Smart Strips January 16, 2010

If you haven’t heard about Smart Strips, let me tell you about them.  Smart Strips are power strips that help you cut down on wasteful stand-by power.  For instance, you can plug your TV into the CONTROL plug and all your peripherals (DVD, cable box) into the SWITCHED plugs.  When you turn off the TV the peripherals turn off automatically.  You don’t have to switch off a bunch of different switches and you don’t have to dig around to reach the power strip.  There is also built-in surge protection.  The Smart Strips now come in different sizes and applications (office, entertainment).  The strips should pay for themselves in energy savings in about three months.  Here is one resource for these and other energy savings power strips.
